Fay, Manitowoc, Wis., assignor to Alu minum Goods Manufacturing 00., Manitowoc, Wis. Application January 22, 1937, Serial No. 121,779 2 Claims. This invention appertains to handles for cook ing utensils, and more particularly to novel means for securing a handle to a coffee percola tor, or similar utensil. 5 In co?ee percolators, it is generally the custom to provide a wooden handle, so that the percola tor can be easily manipulated without danger of the user’s hands being burned. The space be tween the upper and lower brackets is generally 10 limited, due to the wood bushings or sleeves sur rounding the bolts employed for holding the han dle of the percolator, which prevents an easy grip being had on the handle. It is, therefore, one of the salient objects of (Cl. 16-414) Figure 5 is a detail side elevation of a modi ?ed form of the bracket or strap, with parts thereof broken away and in section. Figure 6 is a side elevation of a further modi ?ed form of the bracket or strap. Figure 7 is a side elevation of a still further modi?ed form of the bracket or strap. Figure 8 is an enlarged detail sectional View taken substantially on the line 8—8 of Figure 2, looking in the direction of the arrows, illustrat- 10 ing the means of associating the attaching clip with the bracket or strap of the type shown in Figures 1 to 4, inclusive. Referring to the drawing in detail, wherein 15 the invention to provide a handle embodying a wooden handle, with a novel means for anchor ing the extreme lower end of the same to the per similar reference characters colator body by means of a metal strap, whereby ample space will be provided between the upper 20 bracket and the lower strap for the hand. Another salient object of my invention is to provide a durable and simple means for detach ing utensil, such as a percolator P, shown in dotted lines in Figure 1 of the drawing. The handle H includes a wooden hand-grip I0, which 20 ably connecting the strap to the hand-grip, the percolator body in the manner now custom arily practised, and thus the upper end of the grip can be provided with a diametrically ex- 25 tending opening ll through which is inserted a holding bolt I2. The inner end of the bolt is adapted to be threaded into a socket carried by the percolator body, and the head of the bolt is countersunk within the hand-grip. A sleeve 30 formed of wood, or other material, can be placed 2 whereby the grip can be easily and quickly re placed when necessary, or desirable. A further object of my invention is to provide novel means for forming the strap, whereby the same will underlie the hand-grip to form a pro tection therefor, and at the same time permit 30 ?rm connection thereof to the grip. A still further object of my invention is to pro vide a novel means for securing percolator han dles in place of the above character, which will be simple and easy to manufacture, and one 35 which can be placed upon the market and incor porated with a percolator at a small cost. With these and other objects in view, the in vention consists in the novel construction, ar rangement, and formation of parts, as will be 40 hereinafter more speci?cally described, claimed, and illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in which drawing: Figure 1 is a side elevation of a utensil handle 4 constructed in accordance with my invention, parts of the handle being shown broken away and in section to illustrate the construction thereof. Figure 2 is a transverse section through the handle-securing means taken substantially on the line 2-—2 of Figure 4, looking in the direc 50 tion of the arrows. Figure 3 is an inner end elevation of the bracket or strap forming a part of the handle securing means. Figure 4 is a top plan view of the bracket or 55 strap. designate corre- 15 sponding parts throughout the several views, the letter H generally indicates a handle for a cook can be ornamented in any desired way. The up per end of the hand-grip l0 can be secured to around the bolt between the percolator body and the hand-grip. The lower end of the hand-grip is connected to the percolator body in a novel manner, and 35 thus I utilize a metal strap or bracket l3, on which the lower end of the hand-grip is adapted to rest. The inner end of the strap or bracket I3 has formed thereon a right angularly ex tending attaching foot [4, having openings I5 40 therein by means of which the strap can be riv etcd to the percolator. The strap l3 adjacent to its outer end is provided with a transversely extending slot I 6, through which is inserted an > attaching clip- ll. If desired, this attaching clip 45 IT can be transversely bowed, as best shown in Figure 4, so as to frictionally grip the walls of the slot. Struck out from the body portion of the clip are upper and lower ears [8 and I9, which form means for engaging the thread of an at- 50 taching screw 20 shown in dotted lines in Fig ure 1 of the drawing. The lower end of the hand-grip M has formed therein an axial bore 2| for receiving the clip, and communicating with the bore is a diametrically extending open- 55 ,2 l " 2,127,250 ing 22 for the reception of the screw 20, the head shown in Figure 6 of the drawing, and, obvi of which is adapted to be countersunk within the hand-grip. “Man In assembling the clip I‘! with the strap, the same can be ?rst inserted through the opening l6, after which the ears l8 and Hi can be punched therefrom, or the ears l8 and I9 can be punched from the clip before the assembling process. In this instance, the lower end of the clip is in serted through the slot I6, and the lower end ously, the arm 32 is adapted to be inserted with in the bore of the hand-grip. Figure 7 shows a further modi?ed form of the bracket, and in this form an arm 35 is struck out from the body portion of the bracket similar to the form shown in Figure 5, but in this form the arm is bent back, as at 36, against the body portionof the bracket to form a re inforcement therefor. - - ' Obviously, the strap or bracket lies consider The outer end of the strap or bracket is pref - ably below the point occupied by the usual lower holding-bolt, and wood bushing or sleeve. Hence, erably rounded so as to conform to the con ?guration of the hand-grip II]. In connecting ample space is allowed for the user’s hand around 15 the hand-grip with the bracket or strap, the the hand-grip. Changes in details may be made without de hand-grip is placed on top of the strap or bracket in such a manner that the clip II will extend into parting from the spirit or the scope of this in of the clip is upset, as at 23. F the bore 2|, after which the screw 20 is placed through the opening 22, and threaded between vention, but what I claim as new is: 1. A handle for cooking utensils comprising the ears l8 and I9. a wooden hand-grip having an axial bore open- .1 vBy this construction it can be seen that novel and simple means has been provided for con necting the wooden hand-grip with the perco lator, and that the strap will form a protectibn for the lower end of thegrip. In Figure 5 I have shown a modi?ed form of ing out throughits lowervend and a radial open ing communicating with the bore, an attaching bracket underlying the lower end of the hand bracket or strap, and in this ?gure an angle shaped bracket vor strap 25 is provided, having a horizontal body portion 26 and a vertically grip, an attaching foot formed on the inner end of the bracket for connection with the cook- ' ingutensil, the outer end of the bracket hav ing a slot therein, a clip extending through the slot into the bore- having thread-engaging tongues thereon, and a screw ?tted in said open ing engaging the tongues, said clip being of an 30 extending attaching foot~2'|. Struck out from ‘the body portion 26'of the strap or bracket ‘is an upstanding ear 28, and this ear in turn has struck therefrom the upper and lower tongues 29 and 3B, which are adapted to be engaged by the attaching screw. This bracket is utilized in the same ‘manner/as the ‘bracket l3, and hence 2. A handle for cooking utensils comprising, a hand grip having an axial bore opening out through its lower end, and a radial opening com municating with the bore and opening out one 35 side of the handle, a ?at attaching bracket com the ear 28 is inserted within the ‘bore 2| of the pletely underlying the lower end of the hand grip hand-grip. . > In lieulof punching the ear v128 from the body portion of ‘the bracket or strap, the outer end of the strap can be folded back upon itself, as at 3|, after which its folded portion can be bent at an angle to the'body portion of the. strap to form an arm 32.v The arm 32 is then struck 14.5 out from the same upper and lower tongues 33 and 34, which are adapted to engage the threads of the attaching screw. This form is clearly arcuate shape in transverse cross section. and closing the open end of the bore, means con necting the inner ,end of the bracket with the cooking utensil, the outer end of the bracket hav 40 ing aslot therein, a removable, clip engaging the lower face of the bracket and extending through the slot .and into the bore of the hand grip past the opening, and a screw ?tted in said opening and threaded into the clip. :145 RAY H. .FAY.
